Grandmother camps out for 43 hours for ice cream cone

STEVENS POINT (WKOW) -- One grandmother is very serious about her grandson and his ice cream.

Michelle Cuestas of Green Bay used two vacation days and camped out for 43 hours to make sure her grandson would be first in line for the 2010 opening of a Stevens Point ice-cream landmark.

Belts' Soft Serve opened for the year Friday at 11 a.m. Thanks to grandma, Brayden Banks, who is 6, placed the first order.

The Stevens Point Journal says Cuestas arrived Wednesday at 4 p.m. She planned to spend the night in her car but after locking her keys in the car, she instead slept in the Belts bathroom.

Brayden arrived Thursday morning. The two passed the last 24 hours playing games, reading and drawing.

Cuestas says the wait was worth it. She says making memories with her grandson is priceless.
